June 20: John Orfino #MakingItPossible

“Hi, my name is John Orfino. I am 51 years old and my life changed dramatically in April of 2015. I was diagnosed with ALS and given three to five years left to live. Dang! That’s the kind of news that can ruin your day. ALS has taken away my ability to work and enjoy the activities I love. But, ALS has not taken away my will to live. Soon after I was diagnosed with ALS I was introduced to the ALS Society of Alberta. Wow, lucky me. They supply me with equipment and living aids that help me in day to day living, at no cost to me. I am absolutely honored to be the Ambassador for the Edmonton WALK for ALS on June 11, 2016.”
